Hi sumanth2108 , 

 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums , 

 

Lenovo tested upgrade for your system listed on the hardware manual ( item 12 page 80). 

Choosing a different brand suppose to work just fine but just to avoid any inconvience in terms of brand incompatibility , best to match what you currently have in terms of specifications but not necessary in brand. 

 

Product specification for the memory :

16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets 

 

You can get additional 4 GB to upgrade (page 41) to 8GB total if you have 2 slots on your model. 

Try to verify available slots and if a spare ram is available , there's no threat on testing it. 

Max is 16 GB , so you can explore your options for future upgrade to combine or to match.

Similar discussion on this thread.

 

Hope this answered your query.

 

 

Regards

Hi sumanth2108 ,

 


Greetings.

 

As a Lenovo support , I may have to say use the FRU part number as provided from the hardware manual ( item 12 page 80) and order them thru directly from Lenovo authorized centers .

 

But as fellow user enthusiast , as long as the specs is the same :

16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets . Better having same brand for full compatibility in case you plan to get 2 pieces of 8GB .

Check for the reviews and brand certification saying that they certify it to run on this model. 

Example: crucial's  , kingston's , amazon's , Samsung's 

 

From the hardware manual list , you can also match for the manufacturer part (ex . M471B1G73QH0-YK0 ) for preferred brands making sure that you get a  PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L  (1.35v Low Voltage Low Power) . As I buyer I check on return options too just in case .

 

Hope this answered your query and provided you enough information for your choice. 

 

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo Z50-70 RAM upgrade

I agree with Spidey.  Memory is cheap and it's more reliable to get a matching pair as otherwise you may lose dual-channel which can slow bandwidth a bit.

 

The memory is pretty easy to replace,  and there are plenty of YouTube videos too.

 

Good luck!
